Cloud Sync Directions

As any type of synchronization, cloud sync has the three direction types when exchanging files between cloud accounts or other folders.

  • For the first two types, one of folders (either first or second folder) is the “master” folder, and software copy its data to a “slave” folder.
  • The third type allows “mirror” exchange, where data from both folders will replace older versions of same files in another folder, or just will add to folder content.

Handy Backup supports all three types of data sync.
